Danish Institute for International Studies

DIIS is an independent research institution for international studies, financed primarily by the Danish state. We carry out research and analysis on a wide range of issues within the areas of globalisation, security and development. We participate in national and international debates and academic networks and publish in high-ranking academic journals, always striving to excel in academic scholarship. At the same time, we continuously assess Denmark’s foreign and political situation and inform the Danish media, politicians and the public about our work.
